Unlike the last few seasons of Indian Premier League, IPL 2022 will be a 10-team event instead of 8. BCCI has added two new franchises to the tournament- Lucknow and Ahmadabad. Hence, a mega auction is also set to take place ahead of 2022 edition and the old 8 teams can retain 4 players in their squad.

Royal Challengers Bangalore is among the strongest teams in IPL. The team has not managed to win any title so far but has reached final on three occasions. In IPL 2021, the team qualified for playoffs but lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in Eliminator clash. RCB have some incredible players in the squad whom they cannot release in the next season.

Virat Kohli is definitely the first player that Royal Challengers Bangalore will retain in IPL 2022. Although Kohli has left captaincy of the team, he is a prominent batsman. With 6283 runs in 199 innings, he is the leading run-getter in IPL and the only batsman to reach the 6000-run mark.

In IPL 2021, he mustered 405 runs in 15 games at an average of 28.92 and 3 fifties. Virat Kohli is one of the top batsmen in international cricket and RCB will not release him from the squad anytime soon.
